Boy Oh Boy...Where should I start
Hello All! I have just joined here and I am looking very forward to joining your community; a little background information! My name is Karl, I am 17 years old and I live in England. I have real aviation experience; I am nearly at the end of my PPL course! I also have been teaching myself to fly R/C. I have an electric 3CH glider with a 2M wingspan, it has spent more time being repaired than flown…BUT I managed to fly it for 3 hours yesterday without crashing! I am a 6th Form college student and I am studying AS and A2 Level electronics. For my project next year I am planning to build a simple UAV. I will have to produce the electronics side of the project, the plane will be purchased from a local model shop.
I could really do with the experience of others who have been in my position or can guide me/mentor me online!
I would like;
Basic waypoint Navigation (Have been looking at Garmin Geko 201 unit… http://www.garmin.com/products/geko201/
If the model isn’t under waypoint navigation then the plane will fly straight and level until I take control (Thermopiles or Tilt sensors perhaps??)
I don’t ask for much… It is okay if I don’t know any of this yet. The idea of the course is that I research and understand stuff that I didn’t before. I would be really grateful for your help.
